Make-A-List Monday #26! Breathing a Sigh of Relief....

Hi, all!!

It's the last Monday before Christmas!!  Are you ready yet?  I'm so happy to say that I did well on my list this past week - so let's get right to it...

Here's the recap of last week's list:  

1.  Piece a back for Christmas Gift Quilt #1.
Done!!!  And quilted, too! (See #5 below...)

2.  Quilt Christmas Gift Quilt #2.
Done!!  (I'll have to show you pics later - this one's for Lilli and I forgot to get pictures before she came over!)

3.  Make more mug rugs.
Done!! (But there are still more to make - just luckily not for Christmas!)

4.  Clothes for the naked doll!
Done!  I decided to check out the ones I found her in, and it turned out that they were in remarkably good shape, especially considering how old they are!  So I pressed them up and dressed her in them and I think she looks pretty good for an old gal....
This doll came out of my grandmother's attic.
 The chair she's sitting in was my grandmother's also, when she was a little girl,
and was given to my daughter the year she turned three!

5.  Sandwich and quilt Christmas Gift #1.
Done and done!!
Just a sneak peek on this one, since it's a Christmas gift!
I also made a couple of really cool Christmas gifts that weren't on last week's list, but can't show even a peek until after Christmas....

And now, here's what I'd like to get done this week!

1.  Make some mermaid dolls.

2.  Make a house block for Beth's challenge/contest!

3.  Make a baby girl quilt for the quilt ministry.

4.  Begin designing my ALQS5 quilt.

And of course, finish Christmas shopping and wrapping!!  But those are my sewing goals for the week....

I hope you're having a wonderful week and Christmas season - just remember, no matter how crazy it all seems to get and how stressed out you are, the first Christmas was very simple - no special decorations, fancy food, or electronic gadgets - just the best gift of all, the Baby in a manger.

Merry Christmas!



  1. Wow, you have really been quite industrious! Congrats! And that rolled quilt looks like quite a beauty.

  2. YOu're such a busy girl! I don't know how you do it ALL!!!

  3. Way to go Sarah! I'd say the old gal (doll) looks just dandy. Will the chair become Lilli's now?

  4. Ohhhh, I so am just dying that you got that doll out of your grandmas attic! What a treasure that is!

  5. Busy, busy, busy! Love the mug rugs and the sneak peak at the quilt! The doll is very pretty and the chair is absolutely wonderful!!
